[ narrator ] at first, the door to the united states was open to anyone... who could survive the dangers of travel to this young, distant land. that hope to be in america was so great and so sunny, that it colored all the pain that we had during our trip. the first night in america... i spent with hundreds of other recently arrived immigrants in an immense hall... with tiers of narrow iron and canvas bunks.
